What a great camp at Soverign Hill! We got to find out what life was life in Ballarat after gold was discovered in 1851. Some of the highlights were going to Blood on the Southern Cross which was all about the Eureka stockade. Watching gold being melted and reformed and so much more.
Post a comment about your highlight from camp and something you have learnt about the goldfields.
What a fantastic night! Last Tuesday we learnt all about what makes our area so special. Mark, Brooke, Jon and Dani told us about the creatures, plants and why we should look after our environment. Write a comment about what you learnt on Science night.
I want to explore and find out new things! How have you shown curiosity in your life?
Tell the class in the comment section how you have shown curiosity. It might have been trying something new, starting a project, learning about a new topic!
‘A person who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new’
What a great quote! Growth mindset means we can build our skills in any area through persistence and hard work.
For example instead of thinking ‘I did a mistake’ try thinking ‘mistakes help me learn better’.
How could you use a growth mindset in your learning? Tell the class in the comment section.
Over the last few weeks we have been looking at 3D shapes. We have designed and built them using nets and looked at their properties including faces, edges and vertices.
Post a comment about what you have learnt about shape. You could write about the shape you did for your learning task, where you can find them in everyday life or something new you have learnt. Post a comment!
Barwon Heads Primary School is focussing on reducing our waste and using less. One of the things we can do is bring along a lunch box every day, rather than wrapping our sandwiches and rolls in plastic wrap or a zip lock bag. You can also use a reusable drink bottle to cut down your plastic use.
Post a comment and share some other tips that will help reduce your waste at school and home.
Last week we focused on visualising during reading sessions. Visualising is when you create a movie in your mind to bring what you are reading to life! You can use the words in the text and your own prior knowledge to help you visualise.
Choose a part from your story that you are reading and describe what you see when you visualise the scene!
Over the last two weeks we have been looking at measurement. This includes length, volume, mass and capacity. We have done lots of great activities over this time.

This Monday the 31st of October the Grade 3’s had a super healthy lunch using produce from the garden. We picked silver beet, kale, spinach, mint and beans to make a salad. Students brought a container, wrap or roll to put their salad in. Many thanks to Liz (Sonny’s mum) for helping out. We have so much produce that we will be having another lunch next week!
On Wednesday Amy from Silly Science came and spoke to the grade 3’s about science and did some really cool experiments! We learnt about chemical reactions, polymers, magnets and much more.
